RHC-ETIP - A new boost for Renewable Heating and Cooling
The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-ETIP
brings together stakeholders from the different renewable energy
sectors to promote the use of renewable energy technologies for heating
and cooling and to support the phasing out of fossil fuels. Now,
ETIP-RHC got a new boost, as the maintenance of the platform’s
secretariat is secured by the launch of a new contract with the European
Commission and with experts from WIP Renewable Energies joining the
consortium of the three years project.

SCALE-UP: Kick-off meeting in Seville, Spain
The kick-off meeting of the SCALE-UP project, in which the consortium consists of 9 European entities, took place in Seville, Spain on September 14-15, 2022.
The SCALE-UP (upcoming website: www.scaleup-bioeconomy.eu)
project facilitates knowledge exchange and capacity building for
sustainable rural development by assisting regional stakeholders
(farmers, companies, associations, entrepreneurs, researchers and public
administration) in identifying and developing innovative
bioeconomy-based business models.
In six European pilot regions (Northern Sweden, Mazovia, Pays de la Loire, Upper Austria, Strumica and Andalusia), the SCALE-UP project will implement various activities to help regional stakeholders in utilizing the bioeconomy’s potential. These regions have the potential to develop the bioeconomy based on the abundant available and sustainable biomass resources.
